    A delicious and stylish stay near the Eiffel Tower


    A very neat hotel with its exceptional signature chocolate bar. The hotel is very stylish and contemporary, and very close to the Eiffel Tower and Champ de Mars park!

    Unique Quality: The Chocolate Bar!

    Directions: Paris left-bank, Eiffel Tower

    Charming family-run hotel with great location


    A cute boutique hotel, just on the corner of the Rue Cler markets and right next door to the Café du Marche’. Rick Steves’ fans should be quite familiar with the area, and although he doesn’t list this hotel in his guidebooks, it fits right in with his style of travel. The rooms were charming and quant (which means “tiny” in hotel-speak), but we really didn’t spend much time in our room. It was comfortable and clean, provided us with great service and was located in a great location. Open shops and cafes were part of our new neighborhood, and we were a block away from the Metro stop (L'Ecole Militaire) . We had only a 10 minute walk to the Eiffel Tower, and Napoleon’s Tomb (Les Invalides).

    Unique Quality: Being a Paris boutique hotel, you should expect small rooms. If you need a big room, or plan to spend a lot of time in your hotel, you may be better off elsewhere, but if you want the best of Paris right outside your doorstep, then this hotel will do the job. The breakfast room is actually the cellar of the building, and while you can get better food around the corner, you should at least get your start here on one of your mornings to enjoy the atmosphere and mingle among the international crowd.

    Directions: In the 7th district, on the corner of Rue Cler and Champ de Mars

Amazing Hotel

by A TripAdvisor Member

What can I say about this Hotel, we visited in early August and it IS the most amazing hotel I have ever stayed in.

Everything was very clean and tidy, the staff were fanatastically friendly and helpful we cant thank them enough for what was a truly fantastic holiday.

The location is superb only 2-3 mins from the Eiffel Tower and close to all public transports. The next time we visit Paris we will most definitely be booking into Hotel du cadran

A Great Hotel

by A TripAdvisor Member

I stayed at the Hotel Du Cadran for for 4 nights in July with my Mum. We arrived late and tired, but were met by friendly, helpful staff.

The rooms are standard sized for Paris (compact), well appointed, with modern bathrooms and lovely toilletries. The a/c was fabulous, the shower rather good, and the bath a good size, and plenty of mirrors and lamps. The room we were were originally given did have a leak in the bathroom, but we were given another room straight away, with many apologies for the problem, both that night and the next.

Breakfast was standard Paris fare(Croissant, juice, bread, cereal, tea/coffee/chocolat, fruit), tasty and filling, and the staff extremely friendly and helpful.

The hotel's location has to be one of the best. On a quiet street not 5 mins from M. Ecole Militaire, it was very peaceful. But only around the corner a wonderful street of shops, restaurants, and parisan life. Also, literally a 10 minute stroll form the Eiffel Tower and the Seine. A 5/10 minute metro ride to Champs Elysee, Louvre and St. Germain, A peacful, yet central location. A wide variety of resaurants are also within a couple of minutes stroll of the hotel.

All-in-all, a great hotel I would highly recommend for anyone looking for wonderful stay in Paris. I would certainly stay here again.

Loved location!

Stayed here two nights in July, 2004 and would recommend without hesitation. Biggest asset is location--really a 10 minute walk from Eiffel Tower and right off of Rue Cler Market Street with its bakeries, wine shops, creperies (try the banana and Nutella crepes) and more. Metro station 5 minute walk. The location is very quiet, with a neighborhood feel. The hotel is very "Parisian" with window boxes outside windows that open onto the street. Rooms are small (with king bed you have just enough room to walk around the bed) but bathrooms are large with nice tub and shower. Everthing is very clean. Breakfast includes breads, jams, cereals (the granola is fantastic), cheese, fruit and juices, and eggs can be ordered for additional cost. For a great Paris Bistro experience try Bistro de Papa restaurant (turn right out of hotel, left at first street, restaurant is on left side of street). Service was superb and food good. Would stay at Hotel du Cadran again.

A true gem in the heart of Paris - Formidable!

We stayed at le Cadran June 16 & 17 2004 and loved it. The hospitality of the staff is what sets it apart from other hotels. Emilie was most helpful getting us to Gare Montparnasse on time with all our luggage! THe rooms are small but very clean; the bathrooms are spacious and extremely clean.
The breakfast was good continental and the gentleman working there was very friendly. We loved the neighborhood feel of the area. Everything you could need is near by...restaurants, grocery stores, bureau d'echange, post office. My husband could not get over the quiet streets at night. You feel like you're in a village in the middle of Paris. The sites are within walking distance. We visited the Tour Eiffel, les Bateaux Parisiens (at the foot of the Eiffel Tower), les Inavlides, and the Musee Rodin all by foot with two children (7&9). We would stay at the Cadran again without hesitation!

Great Hotel

by A TripAdvisor Member

This hotel is fantastic. The rooms are neat and clean. The staff is incredibly friendly and helpful. The location is perfect. Except for one night out of 5 we ate at a different cafe within one block of the hotel. There is great food literally next door. Get room 504. It has a view of the top of the tower. The air conditioning is a life saver in August.

I went alone to Paris as nobody seemed interested in great places such as this - but this didnt dampen my experience.
Paris is an amazing city, filled to the brim with famous sights and landmarks. I stayed in the 'Hotel du Cadran' - about 10 minutes walk from the Eiffel Tower. The metro is easy to figure out and cheap yet efficient -but everywhere is that close together I only used it to and from the airport. My favourite part of Paris was the Louvre. Actually seeing the Venus di milo and Mona Lisa just made me gawp in amazement. The Eiffel Tower too does not dissapoint, make sure you visit it day AND night!

"48 hours in Paris"

We only had 48 hours in Paris! Could we fit in all the big sights in that small amount of time? Here's what we did:

Day 1:
Arrived via the Chunnel (eurostar train) from London at about 3pm and took a quick cab ride to our hotel. The Hotel Du Cadran located in the 7th arrondissement, right next to Rue Cler (for you Rick Steves fans).
We changed into our walking clothes and took off!
First stop, Invalides & Napolean's Tomb.
Then a quick walk to the Eiffel tower for sunset...we got a little lost on the way back to the hotel, but getting lost in Paris isn't a bad thing.
We found a great dinner spot right next door to our hotel: The Cafe' du Marche'.
We sat next to a family from the Bay Area (USA) and an English mother and daughter on holiday. There were plenty of locals there too.

"Day 2"

We had a quick breakfast in the cellar of the hotel and took off to see the sights. This was going to be a big and long day.
We took the metro to the Arc de Triomphe and climbed the stairs to the top. It's a lot bigger that it looks in the pictures. Great views of all of Paris.
From there we did the tourist walk down the Champs Elysées …all the way down to the Tuileries Gardens. After wandering the Place de la Concorde, we decided to bypass the Louvre (just for today!) and keep on walking. We wandered over to Ile de la Cité and grabbed a chocolate crepe (mmmmm) before entering Notre-Dame Cathedral. It was dark, cool and filled with music from the children’s choir practicing that day. After that, we walked over to the Ile Ste Louis to check out that area. We just wandered though and didn’t make any memorable stops.
After wandering along the Left Bank for a while and checking out the book stalls, we headed over to the Musée d'Orsay to look at the Impressionist paintings, along with all the rest of the amazing exhibits there. We spent a good 2 hours there soaking in all of the fantastic art…but alas, it was time to keep on moving. We met a couple of friends of ours who were also on vacation and we all wandered around the Marais, and also the Place des Vosges. We had a wonderful dinner at a neighborhood restaurant and crossed the river and walked around the Latin Quarter before heading back to the hotel.

"Day 3"

We didn’t have too much time on this day, only about 3 hours before we had to catch the train back to London, so we couldn’t head over to Versailles or anyplace else outside of the center of town. We decided on the Louvre. After breakfast at the hotel, we hopped on the metro and were whisked to the museum in no time! Wow! The place is huge. We purchased the Paris Museum Pass and I recommend it to everyone. The lines were huge, but we just walked right past everyone and entered through the special museum pass side door. No waiting at all! We also used our pass for the d’Orsay and the Arc De Triomphe.
It is almost impossible to see everything here in one visit, so I’d recommend grabbing the museum guide and follow along one of the paths that is noted in the guide. The Rick Steves Books also have a good guide to the museum and he makes it quite easy to follow while also hitting many of the most famous works of art. Our favorite painting was the Coronation of Emperor Napoleon by Jacques-Louis David. We had just seen a musical in London about Napoleon and Josephine and this painting was “acted” out in the play. Oh, the painting is HUGE!
After 48 hours in Paris, we were exhausted, exhilarated and already looking forward to our next visit.
I also recommend taking the Chunnel Train if you get the chance.

Returning after 30 years

by EPL_fan

Hey Gang,
I'm taking my wife to see Paris for our 25th wedding anniversary. I haven't been there for 30 years. What is the general atmosphere there lately? We're staying at the Hotel du Cadran in the 7th District. Is this a nice, safe area? Any suggestions for some good local restrants and nightclubs?

Re: Returning after 30 years

I have stayed in that neighborhood before.... summer of '02 with my 15 yr old daughter.
We stayed in a different hotel (not as nice). But had a great time. You will be right in the "Rue Cler" neighborhood with is a street that is closed off to auto traffic.

There are lots of bakeries, shops, markets on this street. We ate twice at a cafe that will be right across the street from your hotel...I think is was the Cafe Champs du Mars, but they have tables outside & the food is well-priced & good quality.

The bakeries were great, we picked up pastries in the morning & ate breakfast in the park at the foot of the Eiffel Tower.

We always felt safe in the neighborhood & were treated well by the merchants.

You'll have a great time!!

How romantic. Paris for your anniversary. You could not pick a better or more romantic location. I envy you.


Re: Returning after 30 years

There is a great list of restaurants for all budgets on the website -
I have been to many of them and have found most of them to be quite good.
The tip is to go for lunch because the price will be about half of the dinner price.
Enjoy the Magic of Paris...

It's a lovely neighborhood. You'll have a great time.

Happy Anniversary and CONGRATULATIONS!

Re: Returning after 30 years


Hi, happy anniversary to you both! I've read that this part of the 7th district is great for foodies and its street market, rue Cler. Uhm, one word of warning, the area is known to be a Rick Steves followers hangout. Lots of other people have commented that they kept seeing US tourists toting around their Rick Steves books everywhere in this part.

But otherwise, it's a safe, cute neighborhood! The Hotel du Cadran gets great comments too.
